Michael Fabbri & Archie Maddocks
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Forum in Darlington on April 1st 2017:
Chortle Award Nominee 2012 - Best Club Comic
With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects, Michael Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.
Michael quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit; a reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.
Michael supported Lucy Porter on her national Love In tour in 2008 and supported Micky Flanagan in 2011 at a selection of dates on 'The Out Out Tour'. He also travelled to Amsterdam to take part in the Toomler festival, with Keith Farnan.
Not only popular in the UK, Michael has also performed in Singapore, Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi.

Multi-award winning Archie Maddocks is an exciting comedian, who is armed with a natural stage presence, and a “winning smile”. He possesses an affable and likeable nature that immediately puts people at ease and has impressed both his peers and audiences with his charismatic, conversational style, hilarious observations and quick, acerbic wit.
A finalist in both the 2014 English Comedian of the Year competition and the 2014 NATYS competition, Archie finished as runner-up in the Amused Moose Laugh-Off at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe, before going one better and winning the 2014 Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year award. In August 2014, Archie performed at the prestigious Big Value showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as performing several other shows for the BBC, amongst others. In 2016 Archie returned to Edinburgh with his debut solo show.
